We're Teaming UP, and dressing UP to help support Harbour Hospice North Shore!
The team at The Eco Society (well the husband and I) are getting together with our friends to raise funds for the Harbour Hospice by taking part in their "Front UP for Hospice" challenge.
We will be jumping in an electric car from BetterNZ, hopping between mystery hotspots and completing wacky challenges between Hospice Shops, all while championing sustainability in style!
Harbour Hospice provides compassionate, specialist care to people who are dying, while supporting their families and caregivers. Hospice care should be available to anyone who needs it. It helps people make the most of every moment, in whatever way works for them, which is why I think this is a great cause to support.
Harbour Hospice are also doing some pretty awesome stuff around sustainability - they have a number of second-hand shops and work with local recyclers to ensure any non salable stock is recycled/repurposed.
But we can't do this alone, our team and the Hospice need your help!
To take part in the challenge we need to raise $1000 (NZD). Head over to our fundraising page to donate what you can, and share it with your friends and family.
We will also be hosting some beeswax wraps workshops, to help raise funds so watch this space for more details.
Everyone who donates to our fundraising will automatically go into the draw to win a prize pack. The eco goodie prize pack is valued at over $70 and a great starter pack for those starting out of there sustainable journey. Included in the prize pack are:
- Handwash amber glass bottle - The Eco Society
- Bodywash amber glass bottle - The Eco Society
- Tote Bag made from recycled materials - @little.eco
- Net produce bag multipack 3pk - Rethink
- Bamboo Spork - ReChusable
- Stainless steel Drinking straw & Cleaner - Caliwoods

How to Enter:
The raffle will be open to NZ residents only (sorry, we don’t ship outside of NZ at this stage)
Simply head over to our fundraising page and donate.
Every $5 donated will get you one entry into the draw.
A name will be drawn at random on the 19th of October. We will contact the winner by commenting on your donation (you will be alerted through the email you registered with). You can still donate anonymously.
The draw is open from the 12th to the 18th of October 2018.
You can also head over to harbourhospice.org.nz to show your support in other ways like volunteering your time, donating to the hospice shops or simply shop at their stores (which is a great way to shop for sustainably).
And if we raise enough funds to take part you will be able to follow our adventures on October 27th!
Thanks from The Eco Society & Friends xo
